I’m Kim Neeson. I’m a wife, mother, entrepreneur, recovering perfectionist, and fierce advocate for my clients.
A few years ago, I sold my business to the most successful company in my industry. But the road to that destination wasn’t a straight line: I overcame partnerships that failed, litigation and harassment; I led both women and men, hired and fired toxic employees, and had moments when I wondered if I could meet payroll that week; I had friendships fall away, sacrificed personal time to achieve success and had moments where I was ready to literally throw the business out the window. I navigated marriage, divorce, motherhood, stress-induced illness and a few other major life events.
I know what it’s like to question everything. I’m guilty of taking my work on vacation. I’ve turned myself into a pretzel to accommodate the needs of everyone around me.
I’m driven, determined, and dedicated. After 25 years of owning a successful business in Toronto, I realized the life I created for myself was lacking in work/life integration, deep meaning and real connection.
For years, work was my haven - my safe place. I was rewarded. I received all the right acknowledgements and accolades that kept my ego going. Award-winning woman entrepreneur? Check. Work/life integration? Not so much.
Enter coaching. I took my training through Erickson International Coaching. For the first time, I began to question what role I was playing in my own story.
I dug deep. I realized I was allowing work to define my life. To define ME.
When I listened to my heart, I knew there was a way to stop the sacrificing and find my own runway to freedom. Having found my inner happy, I’m now here to be your guide and help you find yours.
